Verichu Verichu
Singers: Haricharan, Shweta Mohan
Lyrics: Sarathy

A peculiar folk number with Haricharan’s passionate voice marks the beginning of the album. Interesting chord progression and Ghatam percussions adds much to the composition. Neat string section creates a feel good ambience throughout. 

Vellavi Manasu
Singers: Padayappa Sriram, Shankar Mahadevan
Lyrics: Sarathy

A punchy composition with a blend of folk and modern rock. It is Shankar Mahadevan’s show all the way. The track carries a good undercurrent energy and macho flavor.  

Uppu Katha
Singers: Chinna Ponnu
Lyrics: Sarathy

A short melancholic solo with eerie orchestration which has the typical trance like feel.  Chinna Ponnu’s earthly voice takes the track to an emotional hilt. 

Kadamai Ondru
Singers: Anand Vaidyanathan
Lyrics: Sarathy

Striking composition with angered chord progression and the vocals suiting rightfully to the mood. The track is interestingly based on Carnatic Raaga Revathy- which has the knack of expressing difficult emotions. 

Oorellam Vettu Sattham
Singers: Anitha, Chinna Ponnu, Mukesh
Lyrics: Annamalai

It is time for a typical rustic kuthu number in the midst of captivating rhythm section and feel good modern chord progression.  The vocalists take the front seat with ease and give an interesting direction to the composition.

Bam Bim Bam
Singers: Charulatha Mani, Priya Hemesh
Lyrics: Annamalai

Another aggressive number with heavy laden rhythm section and energetic renditions arrives next. The track strangely carries a philosophical dimension which is quite intriguing. Nevertheless, it goes in the repetitive fashion with stumbled progress.

Eesal Pol
Singers: Padayappa Sriram
Lyrics: Sarathy

The eeriest composition of the album arrives again in the rustic voice of Padayappa Sriram. However, the orchestration remains same as the previous version. 

Aanai Koottam
Singers: Srinivas
Lyrics: Sarathy

The album comes to a finale with the melancholic solo in the voice of Srinivas. He gives a mellowed effect to the composition with his velvety voice. 

Verdict: Thilagar is a purely situational based album which work in parts
( 2.0 / 5.0 )
